3 sites sharing some resources but not others

Post by MelanieB » October 10th, 2015, 8:25 am

Ji,

I have 3 websites which all sit on the same server and I want them to be able to share resources for specific components:

Jomsocial
EasyBlog
DJClassifieds
Joombah Jobs (or another)

Can you tell me if this is possible?

Also, do those components have to be individually stored on all the websites so they are exactly the same as each other?

Kind regards

Mel

Not sure about Joombah Jobs but others use native Joomla database layer and we can share their database tables (slave sites will load database data from master site).

All sites should use same Joomla version and same versions of these components installed.

Additionally all users should we shared as well.

Note that images like avatars and photos won't be shared because each site uses own folder. You will need to setup symlinks to images folders from single site.

Hi thank you for responding.

Joombah jobs tables sit inside the joomla table so does that mean it should be possible to share?
Do you have any guidance about creating symlinks for these scenarios?

Having Joomla database table is not a guarantee that it's possible to share database data, an extension should use native Joomla database layer as well.

These are usual symlinks, there are tons of articles in Google:

etc.

You can contact the developer and ask if the extension uses native Joomla database layer.

Or create a ticket in our Support Center, we will ask to email extension on our email address and we can explore it ourselves.
